    Double Spacing

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by da_ardvark, Feb 22, 2010.

    Likely an easy question but I'm ignorant of the answer. If you are using double spacing in your manuscript, do you quadruple space between paragraphs?

    My instinct says no, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, do not quadruple space twixt paragraphs.

    Here is a good link to give you some basics on manuscript form.

    in a print ms, indenting is how paragraphs are set apart from one another, not extra spacing...

    for online work, they're not indented and a line space does the job...
